I had this a few years ago at the Homebrew Mart. I remember it being the best spiced beer i have ever had. And living near BP i have had a lot of them. It was nice and refreshing from the lime and ginger, with just a bit of spice from the peppercorn. The aroma was mostly ginger and peppercorn. It would be perfect with some Pad Thai.

On tap at URGE. WAhoo! Supposedly a one-off for Ballast Point Night at URGE.

A: Translucent, vibrant orange with an inch of white sea foam. Good retention and lots of lacing.

S: Much orange and grapefruit with lighter tropical notes: mango and passion fruit. I get some lime and lemon with a faint ginger note and earth. Smells great.

T: Pronounced orange, grapefruit, and tangerine, with a little mango and lime. Ginger is faint, and I get a slight tingling on my palate from the Szechuan that blends with a smooth moderate bitterness. As always with this beer, no alcohol is evident.

M: Light medium body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp, dry, and sticky, and that tingling on the palate from the peppercorn is unique.

Overall: I'd rather have a pint of regular Sculpin than a pint of this, but the combination of various elements works surprisingly well in this beer.
